Prepping your skin for summer

Preparing your skin for summer

Apparently a 'heatwave' is on the way… I would expect so seeing as it's SUPPOSED TO BE SUMMER!! If it ever does heat up or you're jetting off somewhere where sunshine is guaranteed then you'll want to make sure your skin is looking its very best, especially if you're going to be stripping down to your bikini* or if like me, you've braving showing your pasty skin in shorts and tshirts.

The above are three products I've been roadtesting for the past few months in a bid to rejuvinate my skin and improve my pasty pins. I pay particular attention to my legs because they literally never see the light of day. I'm one of those people who constantly wears jeans, even when it's boiling hot, but I am aiming to change this and become a bit more body confident so I've introduced a proper skin pampering routine.

Argan Oil Skin Renewal Body Scrub - £7.99*
This has been my go to shower product recently. It contains crushed olive stones and pumice to help remove dead skin cells and restore healthy skin. I tend to use this before shaving my legs so the hair folicles are nicely exfoliated and no ingrown hairs will occur. I also have noticeable pores on my legs (is just me?) and this scrub has really reduced them and made me feel a lot more confident about getting them out. The exfoliating beads are really small and delicate, which make them better at really tackling the drier areas. It's also perfect for using on hard skin on your feet/heels too.

Australian Body Care Tea Tree Oil Exfoliating Body Wash - £10.20*
Another scub now, but this one is for using all over the body. I am a HUGE fan of the Australian Body Care brand, mainly due to the fantastic smell it emits and how its super kind to my skin. As I mainly concentrate on my legs I often forget about the rest of me so an exfoliating wash is just perfect as you don't really need to put any effort in, just wash yourself as you normally would do and the product will do all of the work. It's a win win situation and leaves my skin feeling super soft.

Nip & Fab Dry Leg Fix Instant Leg Smoother - £10.25
If I remember correctly I bought this from a blog sale for a much cheaper price than what it sells for in the shops and I'm so, so glad I purchased it. I absolutely love this. It's perfect for after you've hopped out of the shower and dried yourself as you simply slather it all over your legs to leave them smooth, soft and silky! Yes really.

Combined, these products have become my skin saviours in the shower. It might sound silly to say but I feel loads better about getting my legs out when they've been properly pampered and looked after but its true and it's surprising what a difference it makes.

What products are you using to prep your skin for the summer time? Let me know in the comments.
